JOTS, she is so adorable. Enjoy each stage, I've found them all wonderful so far. Then again, mine aren't teens yet. ;-)

Thanks Wineland. We have some teen and pre teen years going on right now. Fortunatly the oldest ( my step son but he's pretty much my son because his Dad is a dork and he likes me better )has a pretty good head on his shoulders and my daughter the pre teen saves all her hellish drama up for her mother and is pretty good for us at our house ( have 50/50 week on/off ). I say it's karma : )

Sounds like you have a good thing going. My approach has been create a good open relationship now so the foundation is laid when we get to the teen years. I may be calling you in a couple years to get a few routes out of the parenting playbook.

oh heck man me? I owe most everything to my wife ( NOT ex wife ). I've learned much patience from her. All you can do is do the best you can and BE there is the most important thing I think. It's working wonders with my daughter. And as for boys - I just make fun of them : )

We joke around quite a bit and everyone teases good naturedly. Until yesterday... I called my son a Bierberhead, for no appearant reason, he never listens to Justin. The way he looked at me I knew I crossed some unspoken line. Quickly apologized for that one.

23 and still at home isn't much better than the teenage years.

At least he cuts the lawn....
